Leonard Nimoy Returning To Fringe As William Bell?
If you thought you had seen the last of Leonard Nimoy on Fringe, you apparently thought wrong. Despite his highly publicized retirement from acting with his final performance as enigmatic scientist and Massive Dynamic founder William Bell during last year’s Fringe finale, it appears that Nimoy isn’t done with the role.
On his Twitter feed, Nimoy revealed: “Plans developing for a William Bell return to Fringe. Stay tuned. LLAP.” So, not an official confirmation that Bell is back on the board, but it’s certainly a step in the right direction. Personally, I’m thrilled. I didn’t feel that Bell’s character got nearly enough closure, so if the Fringe team can bring him back in a cool way that further resolves the character and his role in this war between the universes, consider me a happy camper.
In other good Fringe news — you know, aside from the fact that it kicked all kinds of ratings tail on Friday — TV Line is reporting that Andre Royo is set for a third appearance as Henry the cab driver. Does that mean we’re headed back to the alternate universe in the coming episodes, or will we see Henry’s Earth-1 counterpart? We’ll find out later this season!
